2014 Reading Challenges

I always have good intentions when I sign up for challenges. My 2013 challenges…didn’t go so well. Regardless, I can’t resist.

Progress will be tracked on my 2014 Challenge Page.

TBR Pile Reading Challenge

TBR Pile Reading Challenge, hosted by Bookish

Any genre, length or format of book counts, as long as it is a book that’s been sitting on your shelf for some time now. Short stories and novellas are OK, too! Only books released in 2013 and earlier! NO 2014 ARCs and 2014 fresh-off-the-press releases allowed!

My level: 1-10 books – A Firm Handshake
I’m going with anything I bought in or before September last year.

Horror Reading Challenge


Hosted by Midnyte Reader

Horror can be subjective. The events of one experience may be horrific to one person and not to another. But for the purposes of this Challenge let’s be a little selective. Think terror, dread, and fear. I would really love this Challenge to be a meaningful exploration into the Horror genre. Just because a vampire could be scary does not mean that every book that includes one is right for this challenge. We don’t necessarily have to go for the gore, but let’s go for the throat and get our scare on!

My Level: 6-10 Horror Books – Brave Reader.
I sorted through my Goodreads books and shelved the horror books I own.

Indie Fever

Hosted by b00k r3vi3ws by DDS

Read and Review as many Indie (Self Published) Books as possible during this year.

My Level: 1-24 New Authors – Amateur
I find that I am now and indie author myself and have downloaded many indie books in the past, which are gathering virtual dust in various file systems.

Historical Fiction Reading Challenge

Hosted by Historical Tapestry

Any kind of historical fiction is accepted (HF fantasy, HF young adult,…)

My Level: 10 books – Renaissance Reader
I was going to go conservative with the five book level, but I might best that by end of February.

The 2016 Summer Olympics Reading Challenge

Hosted by Tanya of

GOAL To read books set in each of the countries that won a GOLD MEDAL in the 2012 Olympics, or written by authors from these countries – all prior to the start of the next Olympics scheduled for August 4, 2016.
